Background documentation  Automatic Transfer of Vendor Master Data  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

You can transfer vendor master data automatically using batch input. The system carries out the function of creating a vendor master record for each master record. By doing this, the data is transferred to the screen fields and checked.

You should first maintain in the system all the appropriate keys and indicators, and any other master records which are referred to. If you do not do so, errors may occur when you transfer data.


You should check in any case whether the field status definitions are correct. Errors occur if you suppress fields via the field status definition and then provide field contents when you transfer data.

For more information, see the Data Transfer section in the document General FI Topics.
